We’ll give you tips on how to download this massive (7GB+ compressed) VPC, show you how to get past some pesky expiration issues, and get you started with the CTP ...
If you’ve used the Visual Studio 2010 CTP VPC over the last several days, you probably have noticed the warnings about the end of the evaluation period. However, there is a very easy workaround so that you can continue to use the VPC and evaluate this preview of Visual Studio 2010 and the .NET Framework 4.0. Virtual PC allows you to disable the synchronization between the clock in your virtual machine and the clock on your hardware machine. Once the synchronization is disabled, the clock will only ...
Did you see the announcements over the last month on Visual Studio 2010 and the .NET Framework 4.0? Are you still wondering what is new and improved in those products? There is a lot! I’ve been developing on .NET since the beta of 1.0 and I can tell you that this release is as exciting as any of the previous releases. There are a lot of improvements both in the technology and the way that we’ll build applications on the .NET Framework. There will be a larger learning curve for this release than for ...
The last several weeks have been a lot of fun. My team at Microsoft was busy supporting the announcements for Visual Studio 2010 and the .NET Framework 4.0 that happened at PDC and TechEd EMEA. Jason Olson delivered a tremendous series of videos on Channel9 focused on Visual Studio 2010 that followed an earlier, very successful series for Visual Studio Team System produced by Brian Keller. Between the two themed weeks, the videos have 1.2 million views! We finally have some time to breathe and think ...
Silverlight 2 was just released a few short months ago, but ScottGu is already providing hints at what we will see in Silverlight 3 which is supposed to be out sometime next year and will be a major update. Some of the major enhancements and improvements are: media enhancements (including H.264 video support) graphics improvements (including 3D support and GPU hardware acceleration) application development improvements (including richer data-binding support and additional controls) To go along with ...
Just before I add lots of files and folders to my PDC attendee's freebie 160GB USB disk I thought I'd list out the contents as sort of like an audit.

We've got a fantastic opportunity for you here in the Heartland district. Visual Studio 2010 is the next generation of tools for building .NET applications of all varieties.

Recent news from PDC is that the CTP for Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0 are waiting to be tested by you! Chris Koenig’s blog has more information: http://blogs.msdn.com/chkoe...

13:00 Tuesday saw the public availability of the virtual image congaing the “Bits” from the Microsoft Connected Systems Division (CSD). The image contains early builds of a lot of the technology that is being demoed at the PDC, and also a set of hands-on labs that will walk you through some examples of using the technology. The “Oslo PDC-08 CSD Bits Review” webcast will take a quick tour of what is available, and give you some tips on learning about all the new goodies. The main components that are ...

It’s been a very busy week in terms of announcements. “Dublin” has been announced, and Darren Jefford probably has the best summary of what Dublin is and how it will affect us. Channel 9 has published some great webcasts looking at Visual Studio 2010 and the testing and UML features included in the new release. I like working with UML, but it’s not had that much exposure on the .net platform. I fought hard with Rational XDE for Visual Studio.net for a few days back in the day, and have also dabbled ...
